    Scope and Content of Collection

    These papers contain Konstantin Stavrovich Cherkassov's novel "Mezhdu dvukh ognei" in manuscript form. As a former member of General Andrei Vlasov's Rossiiskaia osvoboditel'naia armiia, Cherkassov wrote this work of historical fiction drawing on facts experienced first-hand. Cherkassov was born Lagoridov, but adopted his new name after World War II. He was a captain in the 5th Cossack Division under the command of General Ivan Kononov, and later served as reconnaissance officer. After World War II, Cherkassov first assumed the last name Dulshers. Cherkassov lived in a displaced persons camp in Parsch, Austria, until 1949, when he emigrated to Australia, where he worked as a gardener. Included are his letters to Archbishop Laurus, to whom he submitted his manuscript for consideration for publication by Holy Trinity Monastery's printshop of St. Job of Pochaev.
